Sunday Night Reality
Funniest and best headline of the new year:
Laura Ingraham stupefied by Obama’s popularity: ‘In defeat… he’s setting the agenda’
“In defeat, Obama looks like he’s setting the agenda,” Ingraham complained during a panel discussion on Fox News Sunday. “I mean, his poll numbers are up. He’s got a bounce in his step… He is rising in the polls as he comes off this near-historic defeat across the board.”
Near-historic defeat? Yeah, right. Clueless tea-wingers don't understand anything, do they.

Just 2 days away and the Real Americans take COMPLETE CONGRESSIONAL CONTROL
The Wall Street Journal:
Solid Economy Causes Small-Business Optimism to SurgeHalf of Owners, Executives Surveyed See Continued Improvement
What’s Behind Obama’s Improving Poll Numbers?
"Prices at the pump have plummeted in recent months, a phenomenon that will free up billions of dollars for people to spend next year. The lower prices amounted to a tax cut of $100 billion and $125 billion for the middle class, the Journal reported earlier this month. More than half of respondents to a Wall Street Journal/NBC News poll earlier this month said falling gas prices were having a positive impact on their families, and expectations that the economy would improve were at their highest point since mid-2013.
U.S. stocks rose to record highs last week. Investors say they are expecting further gains for stocks in 2015, citing the surprising rate of U.S. growth in the third quarter and forecasts for strong holiday-season sales. That is yet another factor contributing to Americans’ brightening outlook on the economy. And since his party received a thrashing in November’s midterm elections, Mr. Obama has kicked it up a notch, taking aggressive unilateral action that has cheered Democrats.
Since Election Day, the president has announced a climate deal with China, overhauled the nation’s immigration system, and moved to thaw America’s relationship with Cuba after decades of hostility. Those moves—all made without Congress—have stoked Republicans’ ire, but the new, proactive Mr. Obama is likely a welcome change for members of his own party."
